Manage the health, evolution, and sales of an advertising data product called WEATHERfx. In doing so I have learned the many intricacies of working with a diverse group of stakeholders and being sure that each is kept up to speed on changes with the product.
Manage diverse set of stakeholders (legal, billing, sales, engineering, etc) using Agile principles and open communication

Proficiency in digital marketing and advertising
Expanded from a single country to more than a dozen
Starting at the Air Traffic Control System Command Center, I worked with disparate stakeholders (government, major air carriers, industry groups) to investigate inefficiencies in the national air space. After investigation, it was my responsibility to present findings to leaders to prevent future occurrence. Following time at the ATSCC, I moved to AvMet headquarters to work on a number of research studies around the meteorological impact on both ground and in flight air operations.
Participate in Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) Weather Evaluation Team (WET) meetings as a subject matter expert.
Attend daily operational briefings on the control floor at the FAA’s Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC)
Designed and administered interviews with air traffic control leaders across the country
Self taught new concepts in aviation meteorology
Working with the leader in PV electric plant design and construction, I led an effort to improve energy forecasting. In addition to researching the latest in short range (<30min) cloud forecasting, I advised a group of engineers on the climate of remote locations in the SW United States and across the globe.
Designed new weather stations and developed policies for their placement across PV power plants
Analyzed large data sets collected at multiple utility scale solar PV sites, ranging in size from 5MW to 80MW
Regularly worked with MATLAB, PVSyst, and MSSQL.
Investigated plant outages to determine if there was a weather impact
As an employee of a small start up, I wore a number of hats including web designer, data scientist, short range forecaster, and report author. While this may seem like a lot, this helped prepare me for every other position I’ve held since.
Analyzed long range weather forecasts (10 days through one year) and reported information to a number of clients in fields from retail to investors.
Developed tools to automate repeated tasks cutting analysis time by 75%
Created and published meteorological maps using ArcMap
Developed a web-based tool using to perform a multiple regression analysis of retail sales to temperature and precipitation
University of Wyoming

My education at the University of Wyoming was world class and very complete. I was taught by scientists who were some of the best in their field. Throughout my tenure at Wyoming my grades remained above a “B” average.
Worked as meteorological researcher for the RICO field campaign in Antigua
Kept a full class load along with research
Vice President of university chapter of the American Meteorological Society
August 2000 – May 2004
As is the case with most undergraduate education, my classes concentrated on my major but I also had to take a number of courses outside of my major. It was actually a pleasure at times to change speeds and learn something completely outside my comfort zone. Of course the most important classes were within my major. Until this point, I had never been challenged in the way some of the classes challenged me. Thinking outside the box was a necessity as was working as a team with my colleagues within Millersville.
